Default Feds look to clamp down on guns ‘designed to hunt people’

OTTAWA — The Liberal government says no options have been ruled out to clamp down on guns “designed to hunt people” as it weighs new measures against assault-style rifles and handguns.

The sharply worded statement from the office of Bill Blair, the minister leading the review, comes amid concerns from gun-control advocates that such rifles are becoming more readily available on the legal market.

Firearms groups, meanwhile, fear the government is poised to penalize law-abiding owners in the name of appearing tough on criminals.

Meanwhile the gangs get a pass

Looks like the RCMP are hunters, since they have guns designed for hunting humans.

I keep hearing about how it's going to save lives, mostly in the context of domestic violence. Almost entirely from liberal MPs, who all seem to be concerned women......the spin going on, bereft of facts or any supporting evidence, is sickening.

Yet another reason I chose to move out of Canada, although I fear it’s a matter of time before that happens here too....

Those types of guns are awful. I only like the type of guns that are designed for hunting, target shooting or that group of them designed to prevent other people from hunting me! (and my family, my friends, fellow citizens).

I like guns designed to prevent the hunting of people.

The only truth of this ban on fire arms is it is how communist governments gain control of their people. Sadly our education system no longer teaches this fact to our children. It has not for so long now few people remember this fact. It is time we fire arms owners make this fact known. We will also have to educate the public that communism is not the bed of roses they now believe it is. It is high time we become far more vocal or all of our rights will be gone.
